When Chris Tomlin picked up his daughters from school in Nashville Monday, his 8-year-old had a message. "Dad, we had a bad guy drill today," she said.

Of course, Tomlin already knew about the drill. His daughter's school is located close to The Covenant School, where a shooter killed three students and three adults. A Grammy-winning artist and popular Christian singer, Tomlin had received texts about the shooting at Covenant. He had received texts that his children's school was on lockdown.

Tomlin and his wife know families at Covenant. They also knew two of the victims: Cynthia Peak and Katherine Koonce.
